Path to WEV

Raised in Nicaragua and Costa Rica by parents who were business owners, Carla believes entrepreneurship is in her blood. She worked in banking for many years before launching her business with the support of another Women’s Business Center in California and, in 2022, Carla opened her second location in San Luis Obispo.  Carla specializes in guiding new business owners through the basics of starting and running a business, including getting permits, writing a basic business plan and mapping out cashflows.

Carla wants to help Latinos not only become successful entrepreneurs, but to have the knowledge necessary to do so whether they are ready to start a business or just have an idea. She is passionate about working as a consultant and instructor, helping other Hispanic individuals reach their entrepreneurship dreams.

“I love working with WEV, because it does align with what I believe, it gives me the opportunity to make a positive impact on others.”
